Network marketing with the two health and wellness companies I’m a part of has been such a huge blessing to me and my family. One that I wouldn’t trade.
And as network marketing has been such a blessing, I’ve tried my best to share that blessing with others.
Unfortunately, I’ve run into a lot of myths when it comes to what exactly network marketing is and is not. Which is why I’m taking the time to debunk some of these myths.
And if at the end, you decide you’re ready to Join Plexus or Join Young Living to get not just a great deal on health and wellness products but start your own business, send me an email or leave me a comment. And if you’d like to read more on why I joined Plexus, you can read about my journey here or get tips to grow your own business here.
Now let’s get ready to set the record straight on network marketing.

If I Join Network Marketing, I’ll be a Salesperson
Are you a salesperson? Because I’m NOT! 😅
This is probably the MOST common issue people run into when trying to share their business. They think they need to be salesy- and that’s a turn off to just about all of us. 😆
So if you’re not looking to SALE something, great! Neither am I. What I am looking to do is SHARE. Share my story, share my business, and share this INCREDIBLE OPPORTUNITY 🙌
The opportunity to be your own boss, work your own business, improve your health, and bless others.
I’ve Done Network Marketing Before and Failed
Sweet Friend, do NOT let fear of failure be what holds you back.
And don’t focus on your own short comings or weaknesses. Focus instead on how you can be a blessing to someone else
We all have friends that NEED Plexus. Or need essential oils. Because everyone could use better health. They could use a better multi vitamin, regulated blood sugar, and more all natural energy. And more than that?
They could also use an extra income.
You have an entire TEAM behind you, cheering you on, every step of the way. So do not let fear of failure hold you back. Be strong. Be brave. And be you.
You’re capable of more than you can imagine.
I’m Afraid of Sharing My Journey Because I Don’t Have All The Answers
When I first began my Plexus business, I didn’t know ANYTHING about the products- aside from what they were doing in my own health and life.
Energy. Better mood. And I was feeling better overall 😍
So of course I wanted to share with as many people as possible. BUT. 😕 I didn’t know what to say when someone would ask me to tell them about Plexus aside from that.
I didn’t know how to find the answers. I didn’t know where to point people. And I didn’t really know what to do! 😟
That’s normal. And I’m past it. But I need you all to remember that no matter where you are, you have a team of people here who totally support you and want to help answer questions! We’re here #ForYou! 🙌
Do NOT let fear or lack of knowledge hold you back from doing something HUGE for yourself, your family and other loved ones. You need to be able to share, share, share. And if you ever don’t have the answer, on a team like mine, I can assure you, we have someone who does. Just reach out.

I Don’t Have Time, I’m Too Tired- Addressing the Excuses
Interested in working from ANYWHERE? Breaking free of the 9-5, to BYOB (Be Your Own Boss ), and be able to travel and work from anywhere? Then get past your excuses!
If I can work a business while raising 6 kids, YOU CAN TOO!
And a Plexus business can normally be started for less than the cost of a tank of gas for your car- and Young Living is affordable, too.
If you can afford to drink at Starbucks twice a week, or eat out just TWICE a week, you can afford to launch your own business!
So you have to ask yourself:
Are 8 cups of coffee worth a new business opportunity? Are 8 fast food meals from Burger King, Chick Fil A, and Wendys worth having the freedom to travel and prioritize YOUR family over work?
Yes, yes they are.
I Don’t Want to Quit My Job And Do Network Marketing- I Have a Family to Support
You have a family to support, as do I.
And no, you do NOT have to quit your full time job. A network marketing job? It’s all about things you can do in your spare time. Like message someone. Call someone. Or lead an online class.
As for anyone claiming they don’t have time, if they’re currently scrolling Facebook or watching funny cat videos on YouTube, they have time, and so do you.
You really do have time.
To cut out Netflix binges, to wake an extra hour early, to stay up until 10pm working a business instead of watching the latest episodes of Orange is the New Black.
There’s a Better Way- and Network Marketing is It
We all get the same 24 hours. And I’ve been there. I’ve been the girl who left the house by 6:30 every morning to drop kids at two different schools before heading to my first job.
The girl who commuted and did a crazy 4 hour drive when all was told at day’s end getting everyone where they needed to be.
I’ve worked as many as FOUR JOBS trying to make ends meet. And still had two maxed out credit cards, a daycare bill that was more than what I made at my primary job, and I was arriving home every evening around 7pm, only to do bedtime routines and dinner with my kids, to stay up until after 11pm nearly every night getting in more work for all those extra jobs.
It wasn’t fun. It was exhausting. And my kids weren’t seeing the best version of me because I was burnt out.
There’s a better way. There really is.
And I’m passionate about helping as many others as possible get started.
Blessings are best shared. God has sent you a boat. Here’s the boat. Message me.

People Join Network Marketing Because-
People join network marketing for a LOT of reasons. They want to break free from the traditional job, they want to earn extra income for their family while staying home with their kids. Or they may want to pay down debt.
I’d be willing to bet that a lot of people stumble upon the network marketing opportunity. What I mean by stumble is they get involved because they want healthier, better products for them and their family. They join with a membership to get the deep discount. But then as they start getting healthier, it’s noticeable. So much so that friends and family begin asking what they’re doing. And when they SHARE about what products they’re using that have made such a big difference, friends and family want the same.
And a business is born without them doing anything extra! Wow.
For me, my reason to join network marketing opportunities like Plexus and Young Living was about something greater. It was about freedom. But not just the kind of freedom that comes from a side hustle. It was a deeper need for freedom.
I Joined Network Marketing for the Freedom
Have you ever been in a toxic relationship? Where the other person constantly feels the need to criticize and tear you down?
Or perhaps it was more of a control issue. And when they couldn’t control you, they lashed out and denied you basic needs. Like affection or even access to transportation or money for groceries. And you felt TRAPPED.
Part of the reason I’m so passionate to share what I’ve learned with others is I have been in those kinds of relationships. And while no one deserves that kind of treatment, I KNOW of friends and family who have been there. Who are STILL there. Trapped.
And at some point, it’s natural for our hope to falter. We begin to believe that it will never get better. It’s a hard, dark place to be.
I know what it’s like to pray for change. That God will deliver you. But I also know God’s timing is not ours. And I know that as painful as it is, sometimes it is not within God’s plan for the other person to change.
When I was faced with that possibility, that the other person was never going to change, I knew then that I needed a way out.
When God Provides You With an Opportunity, You Take It
Although it may not be within God’s plan for the other person to change, you can yourself. I began to pray heavily for a way out, and I prayed for God to bless my business.
Which is why working from home is truly an answer to prayer for me, and perhaps it will be for you, too. Because if you’ve been praying God will send you a way out, perhaps this is it.
Because when you can afford to get your own car, you can finally leave.
When you can afford to pay your own rent, you have another option.
When you are finally self sufficient, and dependent on no one else for money, you have more doors open. And you can help yourself get out, and then you can help others find that same FREEDOM.
Pray For It, Work For It
We see the world not as it is, but as we are, and we are all broken. And you Sweet Friend CANNOT fix another broken person. They have to do that themselves.
But what you can do, is facilitate change. And you can only do that if you yourself are free.
I’ve been there. Which is why I’m passionate about helping others get out of there. THIS could be your way out.
Which is where I have to say this. Network marketing is not a get rich quick scheme.
Network Marketing Is Not a Get Rich Quick Scheme
While network marketing is an excellent opportunity to earn an income from home. To earn an income with no income ceiling. There are no income promises.
How many of your friends have you spoken with that deter you from joining Plexus or Young Living telling you that it’s a scam? Or how many well intentioned family members have told you it’s some sort of scheme, a trick, and that no one ever gets rich off of them?
I myself was a part of a total of three MLMs before joining Plexus and Young Living, so I’ve been with a total of five. And while I didn’t make a livable income off of those other three before Plexus and Young Living, I know friends that are doing so with Young Living, Plexus, and one other.
I know them from high school. They’re friends from church. I have one that I met in elementary school, the friend that asked me to join Young Living. The one that asked me to join Plexus is currently making a six figure income- and she and I ran cross country together and grew up in the same town! She’s just like me. A sweet girl with a passion for Jesus, her family, and running a business.
A Network Marketing Business is a Real Business
If you think you’ll pay a membership fee and then sit on your sofa with arms wide open and money will just start raining down, you’re wrong.
A network marketing business is a real business. And if you want to earn an income, you will have to work.
Thankfully, it’ll be fun, you’ll have a wonderful team to support and cheer you on, and the hours will be your own. You decide when and if you’ll work on any given day. And you get to do that around anything and everything else.
If your son has soccer, go to the game. STEM night at your child’s school? Go participate!
Family emergency cross country? Fly out! Be there for your loved ones! The best part about a network marketing business is that it comes with you. If you have phone and internet access, you can work from literally anywhere.
And I bet if you were to weigh what you’re currently doing against the freedom that a network marketing opportunity could provide, you’d find that network marketing is better.
To Join a Network Marketing Opportunity, Connect
If you’re interested in joining a network marketing opportunity, I’ve included the links below.
Having said that, the best way to figure out the best deal in joining is to reach out to a network marketer! This way, you find what specials or incentives may currently be going on, and you’ll also get to talk to your mentor/sponsor BEFORE joining.
Navigating a network marketing website may be confusing. There are so many great options. Which one is right for you depends on a lot of factors, and a sponsor, like myself, can help you choose the route that’s best for you.
